Miss a day, miss another Lower East Side gallery opening! Shin Gallery is the latest addition to the still-flourishing neighborhood visual art scene. Director Hong Gyu Shin says it’s the only gallery in New York City focused on contemporary Korean art. Most of the artists represented are well-known internationally but have never had New York shows.
The first exhibition features 25 mixed-media works from South Korean artist Hong Seung-pyo, who was inspired by Chinese calligraphy. You can see the paintings through February 22. More information on the Shin Gallery’s web site.
The space, at the corner of Grand and Orchard streets, was previously occupied by pop-up gallery CollectiCo.
